If you have been flirting with a woman online for several weeks and she’s ready to meet you, you may not know just what to do or if meeting her would be a good idea. You may be afraid that once you meet in person you won’t know what to say or how to act, but if she likes you enough to meet you in person you may just need to remember to be yourself. Of course, there are a few other tips that can also help.
When you meet for the first time, don’t start being overly romantic or asking too many personal questions. While online flirting has probably been a mix of casual conversation and a few serious talks, but when meeting in person for the first time you should keep things as casual as possible. Follow her lead and discuss your day, your dog, the weather and the dress. Remember not to go too deep.
Being yourself is what got you to this point in the first place, so it’s a good idea to continue that trend. Being yourself should come easy with this woman, unless you’ve been lying to her through online flirts. Assuming that you have not, picking up a conversation you left off online can help you get into the swing of talking to her in person.
Dress Nicely, But Not Overdone
When you meet her for the first time you’ll want to impress her with your looks, but not seem like you’re trying too hard. Dress nicely, but not overdone. Meet somewhere casual so that you both can enjoy each other’s company and feel comfortable at the same time. This will also help you dress nice without having to put too much effort into it. Jeans, a nice shirt, some decent shoes to match will suffice and go easy on the cologne. There is no greater turn off than a man that bathes in too much cologne.
Don’t Show Up With Flowers
You may be tempted to impress her with romantic gestures, like bringing flowers on the date. Don’t do this. It could send the wrong vibe and suggest you want to get serious with her. Many people look at online flirting like dates, but not everyone does. Act like this encounter with her is the first time you’ve met her in any way and show up to it viewing it as a first date.
